Review this Book

Operation Red Sequoia


Operation Red Sequoia is a fast paced, high stakes escape thriller, set at a Top Secret research facility in the Nevada desert.

In the early years of the 21st century, project ESCA is born from deep within the defence department of the U.S. Government. Its brief is simple; to use the most advanced scientific and medical research available to create a more advanced human being. One with enhanced senses, metabolism, and immune system. A person who can be more effective in a wide range of environments, from hostile combat conditions to industrial espionage.

Special Forces soldier Rudy Sillenbrook (Sill), is critically injured in an anti-terror operation, but his family are told he was killed in action and his body not recovered. He is the first guinea pig for the ESCA project, and will become part of a team of elite, almost super human, individuals. But a rogue senior scientist on the project has other plans. He discovers that he is dying from cancer so devises an audacious plan to get Rudy out of the facility.

Once his escape has been confirmed, ‘Operation Red Sequoia’ is invoked; a term known to local and state law enforcement authorities in Nevada. Rudy must be returned alive, at all costs. There follows a thrilling chase from Las Vegas to New York as the project team attempt to recapture him.

As the time ticks by the net slowly tightens as Rudy is tracked across country to his final destination, resulting in a thrilling climax that leaves Rudy clinging onto life by a thread.

A familiar tale of an injured soldier rebuilt by the government. Rudy has incredible new abilities but the government agency is only interested in meeting project schedules and cost, not the revolutionary capabilities Rudy has. Lots of moving parts with government agency management bumbling it's way along.
In the end, I found the whole tale made me laugh frequently at the turn of events. I enjoyed this book.

During a covert operation, Rudy “Sill” Sillenbrook is fatally wounded. Reluctantly, his team follows orders and leaves him to his fate. What they don’t know is that at a top secret facility in the western U.S., a project is underway to create the first “super-soldier” and Sillenbrook will be there first subject. If successful, Sillenbrook will be just the first of many with enhanced senses and physical abilities. When he manages to escape the base against all odds, a nationwide search is launched. Sill is in a race for his life from a government who wants to keep his existence a secret.

Operation Red Sequoia by Chris Worthington is an entertaining and fast-paced thriller. This book appears to be Worthington’s first attempt at a thriller and by most measures it is a successful one. If you are looking for a quick read with well-developed characters, you should consider Operation Red Sequoia. I would give this book 4/5 stars.
